Startuplandia: Where Ideas are Abundant but Execution is Everything

You spent a weekend (or longer) building out a prototype for your idea. You have a team of folks (or maybe you need to find a new team) amped and ready to bring your product to market. You are excited about the possibilities of your product but overwhelmed with figuring out the next step to making your startup a reality.

It's time for a chat with Sol Lipman.

Sol has a knack for getting startups started and building the momentum to bring them to market. We live in an age where ideas are abundant but success is reserved for startups that have the ability to execute. Sol continues to show the world that he can execute and deliver valuable products and teams. Sol will engage the TechRaising community in a conversation about how to get your s#$^ launched.


Sol Lipman is a serial entrepreneur and mobile developer who recently joined AOL as a part of the company's acquisition of Santa Cruz startup Rally Up, maker of the popular Rally Up and FacePlant mobile applications. At AOL, Sol is focused on bringing killer mobile-first applications to market and identifying mobile opportunities for existing AOL properties.

Sol was the founder and CEO of Rally Up and also co-founded, an online video sharing platform. Prior to that, he co-founded Sticky Inc, a flash memory-based operating environment that was acquired by DeviceVM. During the swinging dotcom days, he founded thedigs network, which was acquired by idrive and is credited as being one of the first social networks.!/thesolster

Maybe have the equipment up and running then load the presenters materials on the working equipment they bring in a standard format like .PDF. I watched a CEO go through this at a Biz Plan Competition. Seems like something that occurs more ortent hen expected. All The Best... G

    It was a good talk, giving me plenty to think about. Mostly though it was great to be with the community of geeks. I got a great charge from that. Thank you! And, I'll be there on Wednesday for the hack-night.
